Kurokami The Animation Episode Summary 23, End Thoughts

Yes, I know this is well overdue but after the previous episode, it felt like the series had already ended so I wasn't in a rush to watch this. That and I've been busy translating a novel. Episode 23 PathwaysOriginal OP "Sympathizer" and ED "Iro no nai Sekai" are used. Kuro leaves to return to the Sacred Land and remembers everything...


The Puchi Eva: Evangelion at School Series

Just finished watching the 26 short episode parody series, "Puchi Eva". The super-deformed character models and animations are very cute but, the first half was literally filled with toilet humour. The scenarios were so horribly scripted, I almost decided to drop the show... But then I remembered I've yet to see the sample episode...

Doraemon 2008 - Nobita and the Legend of the Green Giant

Yes, I still like watching Doraemon. Laugh all you want =P Almost forgot about this Nobita and the Legend of the Green Giant from 2008 but, better late than never. This is one of the better new Doraemon movies I've seen full of comedy and less repetitive talking animals material. I'm liking the modern animation style, artwork and the...

It will contain both the English and Russian dub of the movie for Japanese fans to enjoy.

Evangelion 1.11 Movie, Small Changes and Additions

An increment in the first decimal place in computer software version numbers usually mean a large number of changes have been made, few being significant new features but not enough to give the original design a complete overhaul. In this case, I don't think it's true of Gainax's Blu-ray release of Evangelion 1.11 (also available on...


Makoto Shinkai Moves Back to Tokyo

It's been a while since we heard Shinkai mention anything about his new piece of work. After taking a detour and spending some time in Greece before returning to his home in Nagano, he wrote yesterday (or technically the day before) that he has moved to a new apartment in Tokyo, Shinjuku. He gets pretty tired out just thinking about all...
